The position of Arios Pagos is between the Acropolis and Thissio, in the center of Athens, in one of the most famous places in the world, because that is where a meeting took place, which is known to have influenced human history, as far as we know it.
In Arios Pagos, the apostle Paul met the spirit of ancient Greece, a spirit that was cultivating its thought and the search for the truth for centuries. The time was not accidental, because the conditions were mature for a substantial change in the religious practice of the ancient Greeks, who continued to sacrifice animals to the gods of Olympus.
The message that Apostle Paul brought on that day to Arios Pagos was the message of resurrection, not as a philosophical parameter, but as a practice of releasing power that relieves people of the fear of death.
Although the ancient Greeks knew and cultivated to a high degree the thought from which measurable results are produced in everyday life, however, the dimension of the resurrection and the power that caused it was outside of their own agenda, precisely because it presupposes the existence and cultivation of faith to a god who does not have needs, but has the supplies, his gifts to his creations for the temporary earthly but also the eternal afterlife.
